The 3-2 vote by the Senate Committee on Commerce, Energy and Military Affairs Committee came over the vigorous objections of Bobbi Sparrow, president of the Arizona Automobile Dealers Association.

"A manufacturer cannot be a dealer in this state," said Bobbi Sparrow, president of the Arizona Automobile Dealers Association. Arizona law prohibits manufacturers from selling directly to Arizona consumers. "We put that in law in 2000," Sparrow said.

One purpose, she said, is ensuring that buyers have dealerships available should a vehicle be recalled or need service. Since most areas have multiple dealerships, that ensures competition for customers, which in turn keeps prices down, Sparrow said.
"If you're the manufacturer, you have one set of pricing," with no incentive to knock down prices, she said.
Sparrow acknowledged the law is also there to protect dealers who have invested money in setting up a franchise for a specific manufacturer. Allowing a manufacturer to sell directly to consumers would allow them to financially squeeze out the dealers, she said.
She said most states have similar laws. Tesla is "trying to buck the system," she complained.

“If you’re the manufacturer, you have one set of pricing,†she said, with no incentive to knock down prices.
But Sparrow acknowledged the law is also there to protect dealers who have invested money in setting up a franchise for a specific manufacturer. Allowing a manufacturer to sell directly to consumers, Sparrow said, would allow them to financially squeeze out the dealers, leaving them with buildings, car lots â€" and nothing to sell.
She said most other states have similar laws.
